The Briefing Room with David Loyn

Wednesday 18th May at 1830 | £23.00 per person |*The ticket includes welcome canapes & prosecco

The RAG is excited to announce the launch of The Briefing Room, the latest series of events to be added to their ever-expanding Member Events Programme. During these frequent talks, members will hear expert views on military matters - past, present and future - from specialists with unique insights, either drawn from their own experience, or the direct experience of others. 

The inaugural Briefing Room talk will be hosted by David Lyon, a writer whose work Sir Max Hastings believes would have helped Barack Obama make sense of the region since the Twin Towers attack. Share in David explaining how the conflict in Afghanistan was much more protracted than might have been the case on the back of aid – or the fog of aid, as the author suggests – bankrolling warlords to keep the Taliban at bay. Then, if desired, continue this dialogue with David, a visiting fellow at King’s College London’s department of war studies, over supper in the Coffee Room, offering a prolonged chance for all opinions to be shared.
